International Student Services provides services to over 4,000 international students at the UA, as well as international visitors, sponsored student organizations, and prospective students and their parents. Therefore, in order to provide the best possible service and ensure you have adequate access to meet with advisors, please come to ISS during quick advising hours or schedule a 30-minute appointment if you need advising. Our front desk staff can help you submit requests and schedule appointments, but immigration advice is provided by advisors during advising hours.

Quick Advising

Quick Advising is available to all international students on a first-come, first-serve basis during the times above. Each quick advising session is limited to 10-15 minutes. If your question requires more time, we will be happy to schedule a 30-minute follow-up appointment for you at our next availability. If you know in advance that you will need more than 15 minutes with an advisor, then please schedule an appointment.
